Diversity Mission Statement
 

Maria Montessori believed that young children should study the similarities and differences between communities around the globe, to build an early and growing awareness of our diverse, interconnected world.

Our Montessori school strives to be an intentionally diverse community, comprised of people of different ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds, gender identities, family structures, sexual orientations, racial identities, national origins, religions, and abilities.

We celebrate the ways that our uniqueness and differences enable us to enrich each other’s lives. We actively seek to create an atmosphere of respect and openness, in which every person is recognized and supported.

In accordance with the MCS Strategic Plan, we continue to work to strengthen diversity and inclusiveness in our community. MCS strives to provide a culturally competent curriculum in the context of the Montessori philosophy’s commitment to social justice and peace.  Our work is supported by the MCS Administration and by the Diversity and Equity Committee, which is made up of a dedicated group of parents, faculty, and members of the Board of Trustees.
